“Truth will be spoken, even if our shadows desert us” And Responding To Tragedy
August 25, 2006
Ali Eteraz deals with a horrible tragedy- and he will not be denied.
His post is a must read- and then read again.
…Muslims must take the Quran and describe what it says based on what they know and what they aspire towards. The Fourth Caliph Ali once said: “The Quran is but ink and paper. It is we who speak.” For quite some time now it has been the demagogues of the faith who have been speaking. They have been the ones who have managed to describe our history according to their self-serving purpose… We must step forward and redescribe our history in such a way that it gives you the result you want: peace and prosperity; instead of being a tool for your destruction.
